House GOP proposes 'Let Trump Speak Act' to ban most defendant gag orders

House GOP members have brought forward the "Let Trump Speak" act to prevent judges from issues most gag orders on defendants in criminal or civil cases. This come as President Donald Trump stands trial in New York City, has had multiple gag orders imposed on him, and has been fined $10,000 for alleged violations of those orders.

H.R.8410, or the "To prohibit judges from issuing gag orders in certain circumstances" bill was put forward by Rep. Andy Ogles and on Friday morning has been cosponsored by 14 other conservative GOP House members including Reps. Bob Good, Anna Paulina Luna, Diana Harshbarger, Elijah Crane, Eric Burlinson, Thomas Tiffany, Andy Biggs, Jeff, Duncan, Matthew Rosendale, Byron Donalds, Mary Miller, Barry Moore, Clay Higgins, and Bill Posey. 

The bill text reads, "This Act may be cited as the 'Let Trump Speak Act.'"   

Rep. Olges told Fox Digital about the bill, "We have watched for years as a politically weaponized Department of Justice and Democrat activist judges have gone after President Donald J. Trump."  "There is no right more sacred to Americans than the right to speak freely, as guaranteed in the First Amendment," he added.
